What is the difference here: son propre défaut vs. son défaut ?

Chacun a son propre défaut. I think that the above locution has the same sense as «Chacun a son défaut.»; however it was marked incorrect on the quiz. Please advise the difference.

This question relates to:
French lesson "Expressing possession with son, sa, ses and personne, tout le monde, chacun, il faut (possessive adjectives)"

"son défaut" = his fault "son propre défaut" = his own fault I hope that helps. -- Chris (...and you already know what I am not ;)
